Cowboys vs. Giants Game Preview

Dallas Cowboys

Injuries and offseason losses on the offensive line are rearing their head early in the season for the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys only averaged 4.07 yards per play in Week 1, which ranks 25th in the NFL. Dak Prescott did not look good in the Cowboys loss to the Panthers. Prescott average only 5.9 yards per attempt (a number he could frequent over the season as the Cowboys are devoid of pass-catching talent).

New York Giants

While the New York Giants lost in Week 1, there are positives to take from their game. Odell Beckham Jr. looks happy and healthy, topping 100 yards receiving while rookie running back Saquon Barkley added 128 yards from scrimmage and scored his first NFL touchdown. If those two can continue to repeat this type of production throughout the season, the Giants will improve from their 3-13 record a season ago.

Game Snippet

The Cowboys lead this rivalry 64-46-2, but since the 1990s, the two teams are much more even in record. Since 1990, Dallas is up 29-28 over the Giants. In addition, no two teams have played more Sunday night football games than the Giants and Cowboys. The Cowboys are up 7-4 in the series, including a 19-3 win at home last season.

Cowboys vs. Giants Game Prediction

Moneyline Prediction

Watching the Dallas Cowboys struggle in Week 1 to reach 230 yards of total offence (with a healthy Ezekiel Elliott) should have Cowboys fans concerned about the team’s prospects in 2018. Prescott does not look like he will improve from his lacklustre 2017 year and even if he does, it probably will not happen this week.

Prescott is only 2-2 against the Giants in his career, with an 82.4 quarterback rating and a 56.95 completion percentage. His struggles against the Giants bode well for their chances on Sunday night, as their offence should force the Cowboys to throw the ball more than they want.

It is also good to remember that the Giants did go 11-5 in 2016 and beat the Cowboys twice that season. The Giants defence is not quite as good as it was in 2016. However, their offence is better. The Giants offence looked good in Week 1, despite playing the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have arguably the best defence in the NFL.

Eli Manning is 13-14 all-time against the Cowboys, with a better quarterback rating and completion percentage than Dak Prescott (has against the Giants). Take the New York Giants to get their first win of the season.

Pick: New York Giants (+130)

Over/Under Prediction

After a few years of low scoring games, the over/under on this game is only 42.5. The Giants and Cowboys had not combined to score more than 40 points in a game since 2015 or the year before the Cowboys drafted Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott.

The Cowboys style of offence does point to lower scoring games, while Giants offence looks great until it reaches the Red Zone. Overall, this game should be decided by controlling the clock, running the ball and field goals, which generally equates to the under being the better bet.

Pick: Under 42.5 (-110)
